Public Meeting - Proposed Amendments to Zoning Bylaw Number 8499 and Bylaw Number 76-26

January 2, 2019 –

A Public Meeting will be held on Thursday January 24, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers, City Hall, 216 Ontario Street

Addresses of properties: 1030 Sunnyside Road, 303 York Street, 1350 Gardiners Road, 100 Days Road and 53 Yonge Street
Applicant: The Corporation of the City of Kingston
City File Number: D14-028-2017

Purpose and Effect of the Application: To permit trade shows and specific day retail sales as an accessory use at municipally-owned arenas. Further, this amendment is to permit trade shows and ancillary sales as accessory use at the Portsmouth Olympic Harbour.

New definitions are proposed for terms which include arena, recreation facility, specific day retail sales and trade shows. A holding symbol is proposed to allow for trade shows and specific day sales on the properties that contain arenas, which include 1030 Sunnyside Road, 1350 Gardiners Road, 100 Days Road and 303 York Street. The holding symbol will establish a specific condition in which a change of use permit and an Ontario Building Code (OBC) analysis will be required to be prepared by a Qualified Professional so as to ensure the facility meets OBC requirements necessary to support the accessory use of each facility for a trade show and a specific day retail sales use. This information is required to be reviewed to the satisfaction of the Chief Building Official.

Key Map: The proposed amendment affect the properties identified in the key map below.

Background: The use of municipal arenas for trade shows, sales events and uses that are not clearly accessory to a recreational building or auditorium are not contemplated in the current zoning bylaws. This creates uncertainty for the types of uses that can be considered accessory to a recreational facility or auditorium such as an arena. The limited extent of zoning permissions also results in constraints to making best use of the city's public assets, particularly where it can be demonstrated that land use matters can be adequately addressed at each facility.
